Get & Give takes some ingenuity – Zwolle HC and MHC Oosterbeek donate GK gear to Croatian Clubs

Posted On 9th March 2015

Slaven Zlatar, the Secretary General of Croatian Hockey displayed wonderful time management skills during his recent visit to Brussels  for the EHF Development Committee meeting. He hired a van and drove north to the Netherlands where at Zwolle HC and later at MHC Oosterbeek, he collected a full load of second hand goalkeeping kit. This exchange was organised by the  Development and Education Manager, Norman Hughes, and Dutch Coach Carel van der Staak.

EHF wishes to thank Carel and Thijs Jan from Zwolle HC for arranging the pick up of the kit and sorting all through the goalie stock for items that will help Croatian Hockey. We also congratulate Slaven for his creative thinking and being prepared to make the long drive there and back to ensure his clubs receive the kit that they so badly need.
